Gift Ideas

I wanted to share two things I found that I think are fabulous presents.  First up is a Target Gift Card.  Really, a gift card, Yanet?  That’s right.  But it wasn’t the gift card that attracted me; it was the “packaging”.  This gift card comes with Legos!!!

Thirty-one little pieces come in this cute little box for the little ones (or you) to build Bullseye the dog! 

It doesn’t cost anything extra but whatever amount you want to put towards the gift certificate.


Tip:  If you don't see them with their Gift Card selections, be sure to ask one of the sales clerks for help.  I've gone to two different Targets and they both, for some reason, have them stashed in the back.  

The second gift idea is a little last minute for Christmas but good to know for future gift giving needs.  It’s a blog book!  Did you know that you could have a book made of your favorite blog?  Ok, if you did then color me stupid.  I recently found out and I’m super excited about the idea.  Two companies that I found that do this are Blurb and Blog2printDisclaimer: I haven’t tried them so I am not endorsing either.

If your blog is public then you’re good to go.  You can also print someone else’s blog.  Let’s say you want to compile all of your favorite blogger's posts in one book, this is the way to do it!  You can arrange it by label or by date range.

In my case, I plan to have one made by label and print all of the Kids' posts.  It’s a lovely way to have the posts at my fingertips for years to come.

I've often thought of doing a blog book, but I wasn't impressed with the layouts and how many pages some posts take…of course, that was a year or two ago and I'm sure they've gotten much better.

I'll have to check out these two different groups.

Much thanks.

Wow, I wish I had seen that Target gift card when I was there. Instead I bought the packet of gift card coins ($5 each and 4 in the packet.)

Thanks for sharing.

My friend had some books done by that company and they are awesome! She just has all her family posts put in the book, and then she gives it to grandparents for Christmas.
